E171 to be completely banned in animal feed in Europe by 2022


The Commission’s Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 2021/2090 of November 25, 2021 concerning “the denial of authorisation of titanium dioxide as a feed additive for all animal species” has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). It states that the authorization of titanium dioxide (E 171), as an additive in animal nutrition in the additive category “sensory additives” and in the functional group “colorants” is denied.

Existing stocks and premixtures containing it must be removed from the market by March 20, 2022. Feed materials and compound feeds produced with the additive or premixtures must be withdrawn from the market by 20 June 2022 at the latest.
